ਮੀਰਾਂ ਦਾਨਾਂ ਦਿਲ ਸੋਚ ॥ mīrāṁ dānāṁ dil soc. O Leader reflect in heart and mind on the Knower. --- This is a continuation of the Persian Voice of the Guru's featuring the Sikh Research Institute's Researcher, Asha Marie Kaur. In this transcreation, the original Gurmukhi is followed by an English transcription to guide the Sabad’s pronunciation (Divine Word) in its original form. The Persian recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib, and standard Persian often have different pronunciations of words with the same meaning. The Perso-Arabic transcription is written with spellings that allow a modern-day Persian reader to understand the text. This Sabad highlights the journey of becoming vast like IkOankar (1-Ness). We seek solace in becoming like IkOankar, and in doing so, we receive the assistance we yearn for. When we hold onto things that we believe to be “ours,” we take ourselves into an ecocentric place; we become entangled. Sabad Recitation: Parminder Kaur Chanana
In this conversation, we are joined by scholar Dr. Nikky-Guninder Kaur Singh, author, poet, and artist, Inni Kaur, and educator, Surinder Singh as they discuss the poetry, Gurbani, and the inspiration of Bhai Vir Singh.
